hotel lancaster paris, still my favourite ... for the moment

Deirdre Brennan - Thursday, November 27, 2014

My favourite hotel in Paris has always been the very stylish Hotel Lancaster. Interestingly, at the moment, two of the most iconic and glamorous hotels in Paris, The Ritz and Hotel de Crillon, are closed for renovation. 


The Hotel Lancaster is all about pared back elegance ..


a sophisticated, muted colour palette ..


its artwork, chandeliers and Louis XV and XVI furniture ..


and of course .. has something for everyone.

Beautiful hotels in Paris, particularly at this time of the year, are for slipping into for a hot chocolate and luxuriating.  If you are checking in .. all the better.  I can't wait for the grand openings of The Ritz and Hotel de Crillon. 

french style .... hotel lancaster, paris

The Hotel Lancaster in Paris is without doubt the prettiest hotel in Paris.  An extremely chic boutique hotel .... is this not just exactly what one would expect when we think of Parisian style.


I adore the simple, pared back elegance which allows the architecture to shine. 


This is the most sophisticated use of colour .... so subtle, yet only for the brave.  Shades of lavender, lilac and aubergine teamed with shades of grey, crisp white and hint of gold .... how divine !  Not as easy as it looks to achieve the perfect balance.


I have always loved the tile and marble combination in a bathroom ... somehow it creates character.  It is so much more interesting than head to toe marble which is an easier option by far.  How decadent to have your own dressing table and in the bathroom... only in Paris !!


This interior is timeless ... classic and contemorary all rolled into one. Their collection of artworks and antiques complimented graciously by the sumptuous colour palette and subtle attention to detail.

Having said all that, how inviting does that sofa look. Perfect for putting your feet up after a day shopping in Galeries Lafayette.

I knew I was going to fall in love with this hotel when I spotted those lavender grey striped awnings and gorgeous flower boxes.
